The Mount Vernon Estate of Colours collection was created from the rich legacy of color of one of America’s most historic and beloved homes. Inspired by the past, these rich and vibrant hues are as relevant and exciting today as they were more than two centuries ago. Mount Vernon and Fine Paints of Europe are honored to offer these colors that so inspired our nation’s founding for use in fine American homes today.
Washington’s diaries and letters reveal intricate details regarding his hands-on approach and passion for beautifying his home. The man who inspired a nation was himself inspired by beauty, design and bright, bold color. Nearly 30 of these colors are painstakingly duplicated directly from the Mansion’s interior, while period artifacts are the inspiration for many more of the 120 colors in the Estate of Colours collection.
Mount Vernon has developed a special relationship with Fine Paints of Europe, who has generously donated their high-performance paints and expertise to Mount Vernon. All colors are available in a complete range of odorless acrylic, traditional alkyd and low-VOC waterborne alkyd formulations suitable for interior and exterior use.
A significant portion of the proceeds of the sale of these fine paints is donated to Mount Vernon for the continuing restoration and maintenance of this historic national treasure.
